Guys, I think it’s cool to think outside of the box, but the three golden goddesses created Hyrule and plus if BOTW was the only Zelda game MAYBE, but it doesent add up because there are so many games before it

I theorized that the Legend of Zelda takes place on Earth, specifically in the United Kingdom during the Middle Ages because of the Middle Ages vibes and the United Kingdom because in Link Between Worlds, the characters sometimes speak like British people! Probably the best theory that I have ever come up with! P.s. Since the Big Dipper can be seen in the Southern Hemisphere. If my earlier theory about Hyrule being British is correct, then that means that the Legend of Zelda takes place in Australia! P.s.s or maybe, just maybe, the Legend of Zelda takes place not in the future, not in the past, but the present time!!! Crazy right? Also, it would take place in the year 2000 because that's when usb flash drives were invented!

Imagine if this particular theory is true: you're wandering around Hyrule, maybe deep below the ground or something like that. You're fighting off monsters around cave environments and it's pretty standard for the most part, but then you fall into a hole that puts you even deeper underground. Once you recover from the impact, you realize that you fell on top of a metal object. Getting off of it to the weird floor reveals that it's a table of some kind, like the desks used in Hyrule Castle but made of purely metal instead of wood. You then realize that there are more strange objects scattered all over the room. In what looks like a broken chair, likely the one that belonged to the desk, lies a small device that is about the size of a Hylian hand. It looks like something the Sheikah would build over 10,000 years ago, but their trademark eye symbol isn't anywhere to be found, or really any symbol for that matter because the device is so rusty. You then get down some nearby stairs in order to continue exploring. On the floor below the one you landed in lies even more desks with rusty chairs that are either broken, tossed around, or just laying in a position right in front of the desks, likely one that they've been in for a long time. The place is dark, and there are no sign of torches around, indicating this place wasn't built with torches or present day lighting systems of any kind in mind, but instead they were built with something entirely different in mind. There appears to be a door on the far side of the room, but it's blocked off by what looks like a broken machine. However, said machine doesn't appear to be something akin to a Guardian or any Sheikah technology. Instead, it looks kinda like an elevator, but enclosed in solid metal. Right in front of it are a couple of skeletons, but they don't appear to be something that would create a Stalbokoblin or Stallizalfos. Instead, they're just motionless skeletons, likely killed by the elevator. This place is getting far too strange.

By now you're wandering past overgrown neighborhoods and shops. The area is coated in a thick gas, likely the one talked about on the machine. Because of this, you're forced to pick up a strange mask lying on a nearby machine and place it on your face. The mask somehow forms a barrier between your breath and the gas, shielding you from the toxic air. After a while, you're now walking on a long stretch of stone leading to some sort of tunnel made in the side of the rock. The area has more wrecked transport machines, and it is covered in bushes and trees, but is also covered in the thick gas like before. You then head into the tunnel. The gas is also inside the tunnel, but it is a bit more dispersed than usual. The tunnel ends at a pile of rubble and wrecked machines, but it appears to lead up to the surface through the miles of rock. Once you climb it enough, you notice an old ladder, likely placed here long ago, pinned into the side of the rock. This allows you to climb up and up before opening a rusty metal hatch to climb up to the surface.

On the floor below, there is once again nothing but skeletons, destroyed machines, and a gaping hole in the floor leading down to the next level, so you go down there as well. There is a rusty sign on a wall saying that this is the 5th floor, which finally gives some sort of measurement for just how many floors you've gone down since dropping in here. This 5th floor looks like another working space, but it's in far worse condition. An entire section of the western part of the room is completely ripped off from the rest of the floor, dropping down to the 4th floor. Various desks are scattered about, some even tipped over like makeshift barricades. More skeletons are strewn about the room, some of which are holding metal bars like clubs, others holding what looks like knives. It becomes clear these people were defending from something when they died, but the question is from what. Aside from all of this, there doesn't appear to be anything else on the 5th floor, so you then go down to the 4th floor using the gaping hole. The floor is a complete wreck with most of the room completely destroyed, so you're forced to use a long broken window area to make your way to some maintenance scaffolding. You make it to the level of the next floor down, but the room isn't even there aside from one space with a rusty desk. By this point, you see that the ground below you has stone and dirt placed in specific formations, and more abandoned machines lay on the ground floor of the cavern, although these are likely to be for transport similar to the elevator. You then make your way down to the 2nd floor, which appears to be a sort of exercise area. Strange machines line the walls, and their appear to be some sort of material on them. The lights on this floor aren't off, but they are flickering due to damage done to the structure. You then make your way down to the first floor by going down an elevator shaft into a broken elevator on the first floor. The floor is a complete maze of rubble from the building, desks, skeletons, and a crashed machine through the eastern wall. The light are completely on, but most have been destroyed. Near to the northern wall is a working machine surprisingly enough with an intact tapping device. When activating it, you must move a nearby tiny device, most likely made to navigate the interface of the machine, in order to access several messages from the distant past. Perhaps this can tell you more about what you're looking at and what this place is.

Once outside of the building, you immediately notice that the floor you're on is only one of many going down to the bottom of the cavern. Surrounding it are even more buildings, some of which go up to the cave ceiling and beyond. You then continue on, using hanging bits of metal and stone to traverse the outside of the building until you can reach a stable part of the floor. This part looks similar to a storage room, containing more machines, more handheld devices, and even containing more skeletons, one of which is dangling over the edge of the northern wall, which has long since collapsed. They appear to be holding books, but the books themselves have long decayed with only scraps of writing visible. There is a doorway to the west, but a tipped over storage shelf blocks the way. This forces you to use a collapsed part of the eastern part of the storage room to jump down to the next floor. There's nothing on this floor but some rusty desks and rotted away picture frames, so you then jump down to the next. This leads to a sort of dining area, although it doesn't have any signs of fancy decorations or architecture like the Dining Hall in Hyrule Castle. Instead, it appears far more barebones: metal tables with benches connected to them, some machines pushed up against a wall, a few rusty objects here and there, and some more objects on a nearby counter. These objects definitely have signs of there being liquid in them at some point judging by the color difference between two sections of it, indicating these were simple cups. At the tables sit more skeletons, some of which hold strange objects as if the objects once held something, although whatever they once held are long gone. Other clutch more cups, pushed up against what would be their mouths like they were drinking something when they died. Nearby is the door to what would presumably be the kitchen, but it's blocked off with rubble from the ceiling and some metal containers. This forces you to use a western staircase to get down to the next floor. This whole place is once again cranking up the strange factor beyond anything you can imagine.

You then continue on through the area. Parts of the structure are collapsed into rubble, so you need to carefully make your way through. In a nearby hallway, there appears to be yet another machine tipped over on the floor, although the design of it indicates it was made as a dispenser for some kind of small object rather than transportation like the elevator in the massive room before. The rest of the hallway has collapsed into the floor below, creating a ramp-like formation. You then head back to the main room and to your east lies another staircase, but it has long been filled in with rubble. This forces you to use the broken hallway floor to get down to the next level of the structure, which you then do. On this floor is yet another series of desks and chairs, although they appear to be in some sort of special area surrounded by low walls on all sides except the entrance. With this part now revealed, it becomes increasingly clear that this structure is built for some kind of job and not for recreation. These desks also have more machines, this time placed on the desks as if they were placed here for some form of work. These things have obviously been rusting away for a VERY long time, so they're practically useless, but they do have semi-intact devices in front of them. They kind of look like long slabs of metal or some kind of hard material that is extremely light. On them are strange symbols, though most seem to have faded a long time ago, but there are some with legible symbols. However, with the symbols revealed, they appear more like letters of the alphabet rather than just any symbol, but they're shaped completely different from any other alphabet letters in Hyrule. To your north lies another hallway, but it has long been blocked off with rubble. You then see a collapsed staircase to the west, leading outside of the building. With very little options, you head down there.

Here's an interesting fact - if you listen closely to the ambience in Breath of the Wild, you'll hear many bird songs. These songs are actually samples from real birds! Most intriguingly, a lot of these birds are native to North America. Also related to North America, the Voltfruits you can find in the Gerudo Desert look practically identical to Pitayas - fruit that grow from cacti - cacti native to North America. Hmmm.

Those constellations would look identical if you were also on the opposite end (180 degrees) from the galactic center core. This may seem crazy, however, Elite Dangerous and its procedural interstellar map has been used to identify many celestial bodies somewhat accurately. And the game's engine predicts an earth-like planet, virtually identical to our own, at the exact opposite of the galaxy.

Only one problem: it has the exact same cheeky issues as the Mario series in that the gravity varies depending on which game you're talking about. The gravity from Link to the Past or Zelda 2 is completely different from the gravity in Twilight Princess and Breath of the Wild as an example. Nintendo for some reason really likes to play tricks on us when it comes to gravity.
